Kitayama 8000x Water Stone.
  • Size 205mm x 75mm x 25mm

    The Kitayama whetstone has a grit rating of 8,000 but some stores claim that it is 12,000. The reason for this confusion is that the stone "seems" like a higher grit. We use the actual rating on the stone. Kitayama stones contain Magnesium salts that will dissolve in water so it is recommended that you do not leave the stone in water for long periods of time. Just splash water on it and start sharpening.

    We recently switched these stones to the baseless version after our customers voted 10 to 1 in favor of the baseless version. The baseless stone allows you to sharpen on both sides.

    5  Wonderful stone, November 24, 2020
    Posted By: Jeronimo Macias - verified customer

    I didn't know what to expect with this stone but it had very good reviews and I decided to give it a try. Very happy that I did. I had planned on using it with straight razors and my Japanese knives. So far I have used it on two chef knives and it delivered a wonderful mirror finish which is what I wanted. The feedback from the stone is good and it is not too slow. I would recommend this stone as a finisher for knives and a prefinisher for razors.

    5  Outstanding stone, November 8, 2020
    Posted By: Jeronimo Macias

    Just got the stone today, looks good, and is super smooth. shipping was fast and well packaged. Tried the stone tonight and I must say that Iím very impressed with its performance. Feedback is good and it left a mirror finish on my knife. Got to say this is the sharpest my knife has ever been. Based on this initial test I am looking forward to using it on more of my knives and maybe my straight razors.

    This is a very good stone with a great feel. I tend to like Shapton's products quite a lot, however I am happy to have added this stone to my collection as well.

    Love the stone so far. It's not as soft as I was thinking based on things I've heard, but it's not the hardest either. Love the way the edge feels off of this stone.

    This stone has an excellent feel and produces a fine polished edge. CHEFKNIVESTOGO was excellent to work with and fixed a shipping problem without a hassle.

    I bought this stone because of the many good reviews across several forums. I can understand why this stone has such a following. I usually don't take my knives this high except for a little more refinement but I end up spending to much time on this stone because it is such a pleasure to use.

    Most of my knives are German Wusthofs, so I don't get to this fine of a grit very often. The paring, filet and long slicers, as well as the Japanese nakiri and santoku, I'll take to this stone. And it's wonderful. Feels like a much higher polisher yet it cuts very quickly. The resuts are a highly polished edge with great retention.
